Australian Renowned Macadamias

Discover why our premium single origin Australian native nuts are sought after worldwide.
Whether you’re a grower, food manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer, Macadamias Australia has a quality macadamia solution to suit your needs.

 

Trade and export

Our sustainable farming practices and innovative, self-designed equipment mean our kernel recovery rate at Macadamias Australia is incredibly high.
As such, we do not supply the nut in shell market (except with our vanilla happy nuts).
Our high quality bulk raw kernel is very versatile and used to create healthy snacks, chocolate and nougat, baked goods, gelato, wholefoods for your pantry, oil, milk and cosmetics.
As well as providing quality macadamias to Australian food manufacturers, restaurants and retailers, we export premium quality bulk raw kernel and our retail products to about 15 countries around the world, including China, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, the Middle East, Germany, Switzerland and the US.

SUPPLY INFORMATION

At Macadamias Australia we pride ourselves on the reliability and quality of our single origin products, to meet the needs of our customers.

As such, cracking of Macadamias Australia ‘nut in shell’ is done under SAI Global Food Safety Management System, which complies with the requirements of CAC CACCPVER:2003 – CODEX HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices).

It is our business to ensure the safety of your food, and our pleasure to do so. Continued improvements are identified and implemented, making our product a preferred brand.

SUPPLY INFORMATION

To ensure our product gets to you on time and in the required quantities we closely monitor our production and shipping schedule.

All orders are shipped using a freight forwarder located in close proximity to the Port of Brisbane, this allows for a smooth process in organising all the necessary shipping documents.
Payment terms are negotiated on an individual contract basis.

February to August

Harvest

Dehusking occurs within 24 hours of harvest; lowering the heat respiration rate.

The ‘nut in shell’ (NIS) is then stored on site in silos, where the drying process begins

The first drying process aims to achieve a moisture content of 10% NIS before the product is sent to the processing facility.

Macadamias Australia is an innovator in macadamia drying techniques, utilising an environmentally friendly biomass macadamia drying process.

MArch to October

Cracking

Once the initial drying of the first harvesting round is complete the nut in shell (NIS) enters our very own processing facility where the kernel is removed from the shell.

Before the NIS is cracked, it is dried further to achieve a moisture content of 3.5 per cent. Drying shrinks the kernel away from the shell, which allows the shell to be cracked without damaging the kernel.

Once that occurs we determine the outcome of styles and quantities that have been achieved.

February to May

Price & Volume Estimates

At this point we are able to provide an estimate of the expected base cost, as well as probable quantities.

Style price per kg is influenced by several factors, such as exchange rates, inflation rates and global crop production estimates.

We begin negotiating with wholesale buyers and discussing details that will assist in determining the contracted price, such as port of discharge, LCL (less container load) or FCL (full container load) shipments, labelling etc.

It is important to Macadamias Australia to promote a stable market to ensure sustainability of the Industry.

May
